Is making homemade mayonnaise hard?
Nope! I thought it would be really hard to make to, but I was shocked about just how simple it really is. It can be made very quickly and with a few basic staple ingredients.
Do I have to use avocado oil?
I recently made this same recipe with olive oil, because I ran out of my avocado oil. The recipe worked just fine and the whole family loved it. I still prefer avocado, because it has a nice mild flavor and tastes very similar to mayonnaise you could buy at the store. I always choose an oil that is non-GMO and is not hydrogenated. My local Aldi started carrying avocado oil so that is where I buy it, but it is also available for purchase on Amazon if you can’t find it locally.
Is it safe to use a raw egg?
We use eggs from trusted local sources, and from our own chickens when we have them, so I am comfortable with it. I would definitely recommend using farm fresh eggs from a source you trust if you do not have chickens. Obviously, if you are pregnant or worried about using raw eggs, this is something that you will have to evaluate on your own. For my family, we are comfortable using raw eggs as long as we trust the source.
Why do you use an immersion blender?
I think using an immersion blender is the simplest and easiest way to do it because it does not use many dishes. I can just blend the ingredients right into my mason jar without having to dirty up a blender. Plus, an immersion blender can be used for multiple recipes as well and is relatively inexpensive to purchase.
Where would you recommend I buy Avocado Mayonnaise?
If you do not feel like making avocado mayonnaise at home, I found an avocado mayonnaise available on Amazon. Thrive Market is also a great source and has great prices on a ton of organic staples. I order regularly from Thrive.
How much mayonnaise does this recipe make?
This recipe makes just over a cup of mayonnaise. If you need more mayonnaise for your recipe, you can just double the recipe for more.
How long does the mayonnaise last?
Because of the raw egg, I would say about a week. Make this mayo when you are planning to make a few recipes that use mayonnaise! My family loves to make sandwiches and honey mustard salad dressing with this mayo, so we use it up pretty quickly.
